UCLA legend Gail Devers on Tuesday at the 2003 World T & F Championships in Paris was not able to advance past the semifinal qualifying round and will not run in today's women's 100m hurdle final.
Devers, a three-time World Champion in this event, hit the fourth hurdle in heat one, placed third (12.87) and did not advance to Wednesday's final. Two Americans did advance - Jenny Adams won her heat (12.77) and Miesha McKelvy was second (12.78) in her semifinal race.
"I hit the fourth hurdle and it threw me off balance," Devers said.
Still waiting to compete is UCLA high jump great Amy Acuff. Last week, she high jumped a personal-best 6-7.
The 2003 World T & F Championships in Paris will end Sunday, Aug. 31. For complete and daily results, please go to www.usatf.org.
